  • America wouldn't be a country is we didn't break some laws

    There is an exception to virtually every rule. There are reasons to speed in an emergency situation. There are reasons to disobey a standing government because of a long train of abuses. Not all laws are made in good faith, with the best interest of the people they are supposed to protect.

  • Yes there are occasions when it is ok to break the law.

    The key word occasions and I don't mean big ones like murder or theft. Like jaywalking when there isn't a car anywhere on the road or some of the older laws that shouldn't even be on the books. There are situations which following the law exactly defeats the spirit of the law. That is the bigger question. Following the spirit of the law in general is more important than following all the specific laws exactly as written.

  • If the law is against your conscience, then it is.

    We are not robots. We have a moral sense of what is right and wrong, and each individuals conscience may be different. Just because a government official is telling people to do it, does not mean it's right for people to do. Therefore, if it's against what one believes in, then one may have to break the law.

  • Sure it is.

    The question is almost asinine. Lots of lawbreakers are revered, even in our government mandated schools, such as our founding fathers and Harriet Tubman, just to name a few. The assertion that it is always wrong to break the law is an appeal to authority. Unless evidence is presented to justify a law, like not raping, then the law doesn't have any logical backing.

  • Yes, but within reason

    Laws are in place to keep us safe, and I do think that everybody should respect the law. That being said, there are situations wherein breaking the law is excuseable. One example would be speeding to the hospital when your wife is in labor. Another example might be using violence in self defense. Most police officers (in the case of speeding) or courts (in the case of self defense) make exceptions for culpability in such cases.

  • Morality Is Individual

    When a government oversteps it's bounds, say in Nazi Germany, by forcing a person to believe in one Fuhrer and Antisemitism. The United States of America sometimes leans towards teaching children how to think through federally-funded and restricted schools. When a student or an citizen in need believes differently than what the government teaches and enforces, I believe they should act instead of complain. They should act responsibly (not burning cars, etc.) so that others may join their real cause.

  • Yes, in extreme circumstances

    When a life is in danger, or the people's right are infringed upon, breaking the law can be necessary. If an injured person is in the car, speeding can make the difference between life or death. When slavery was legal, people broke the law to help slaves to freedom. In either situation, it was right to break the law.

  • Sometimes it is okay to break the law if no one get hurt doing so.

    If you were driving your car and there is a stop sign and there is no one to stop for, just keep on going, you should not stop just for a sign. But if there is a car waiting to go when you see a stop sign, let them go.

  • For, the most part yes.

    If you look through out history you will find many examples where laws were broken for the common good. When a government uses the very laws it makes to unfairly suppress its people, then those people have every right to raise up against that. But there are many cases where dong it for the good of all was really just an excuse to cause trouble. I kind of view modern riots in that way.

  • No probably not.

    The law is not made to be broken. It is made to stop certain things from happening like stealing, killing etc. Take Robin Hood for example. He stole from the rich to give to the poor. Undoubtedly, his intentions were good. But the matter of his religion remains. The early Robin Hood was a catholic (at least in irony) and The Bible says 'Thou must not steal'. Also the law is the law. So no. Even if your meaning was good, it is still against the law.

  • Don't break the law! However...

    If one's family was killed and the criminal was not punished correctly, I would go as far to say that one who commits revenge would be in the right, in extreme circumstances. But ultimately I believe that the laws are placed in society for a reason and therefor should be respected.

  • No one should have the right to break a LAW, especially the people who initially enforced it upon us.

    By the government breaking the law, people will start doubting the reason as to why they were set from the start. The laws are there to hold people back and show their limits as a human being and as a citizen of a bigger society. If the government, being the people we look up to when it comes to politics, were to break the law, what would hold Americans as to not follow their lead? Everything comes with its circumstances. One decision, especially one this big, will always hold multiple risks.
